May 10, 2012 11:24am Time Cover Shows 3-Year-Old Breast-Feeding
This week's cover of Time Magazine shows a mother nursing her 3-year-old son.
Should a mom continue nursing her child even after hes too big to be held in her arms? For mothers who practice whats known as attachment parenting, the answer is an emphatic yes and some are more than happy to demonstrate.
This weeks cover of Time Magazine shows Los Angeles mother Jamie Lynne Grumet nursing her 3-year-old son, who reaches her breast with the help of a chair.
When you think of breast-feeding, you think of mothers holding their children, which was impossible with some of these older kids, photographer Martin Schoeller said in a Time Magazine online story explaining the cover photo. I liked the idea of having the kids standing up to underline the point that this was an uncommon situation.
The cover story illustrated by the photo takes a look at the philosophy of attachment parenting today which, in addition to extended breastfeeding, also promotes co-sleeping and using slings to wear infants and its roots in the 1992 parenting guide, The Baby Book by Dr. Bill and Martha Sears.
Time also posted photos of other nursing mothers featured in its story, including Missouri mom Dionna Ford of Kansas City, Mo., shown here at right with her four-year-old and five-month-old children.

It’s waaaaay past time to stop breastfeeding when the kid is old enough to call for lunch by saying “tittie, mommy, tittie.” Personally, I’d stop when the first tooth appeared but what do I know?
It use to be a big magazine. It's tiny now.
“Something very wrong with the way the photo is posed”
Yeah, you could say that.
It’s a sick picture and the woman is extremely sick to allow her and her child to be shown that way.
This is the MSM folks, as their downward spiral continues.
I wish Al Goldstein were alive today, I’d love to hear his take on this.
I saw that full shot the first time. That magazine editor and the photographer are sick.
VERY DISTURBING photo. It’s pornographic, child abuse, embarrassing, immoral and I think this woman is disgusting. This kid is going to have issues growing up.....
Gosh, I remember when Time would have a Norman Rockwell on their cover every now and then. Things are spinning out of control faster and faster.
I DO NOT want to see what they have planned for the cover of their Father’s Day issue.
He would have been, but was on vacation and unavailable that week.
It summarizes dramatically his African philosophy of governing a society.
